Beautiful things don’t make beautiful rooms
any more than money makes you rich
facts make you interesting.
We’ve become shoppers
and name droppers.
Hoarders of labels.
Beauty exists when it takes you with it.
When it captures an emotion you starve for
a feeling you well know
a place you well know.
A place where you’d best exist
where it recognizes you.
Unbridled we are free to make manifest
places that exist only in our subconscious.
This is the state in which all the things
we love came from.
When the world did not look like it should
to our hearts
so we made one that did.
These things, however magnificent.
to what’s beneath them.
the foggy accuracy
How long must you wait
to have the emotional accuracy
To walk through this world
in the knowledge of another
is to walk in your true inheritance.
How long must you wait?
This is the good question
I ask myself.
This is my reveal.

Lovely words from a brilliant, creative mind…
To articulate the human experience in words AND 3d is an amazing gift. Most can appreciate the soul of a great structure experientially- feeling the warmth of the morning sun as you sip your coffee, anticipating the entry into a gracious host’s event through the threshold spatial transitions, viewing the wonder of nature through articulated framing, enjoying conversations through carefully sized and placed seating and walls and lighting. Few can describe the emotions. Fewer can create it Thank goodness for those that can do for those that appreciate. Thank-you both for writing and sharing.
This poem is so thoughtful and well written, I am in awe of your words and your thoughtful design. Thank you for your blog, I enjoy it immensely.

What lovely words! I was not expecting to see Bobby McAlpine’s name at the bottom. Not only have I wanted him to build our house for us for years, now I want to marry him!! I’m only teasing but these words were so well written and so beautiful. Their source must be as lovely, as well. Thank you for sharing them.
